Music, Rock and indie

Merrill Garbus once again embraces funky Afrobeat rhythms and hair-raising vocals on her latest album, I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life, but the record itself is wracked with a sense of guilt. Confronting her own white privilege and cultural appropriation, the latest iteration of Tune-Yards seems at odds with its past, stripping away the neon face paint and carefree word-association in favor of music that makes a calculated attempt to empathize. Experimental beat-maker, violinist and vocalist Sudan Archives opens the show.
